Microneedling / Nanoneedling
What is the Difference Between Nano-Needling and Microneedling?
Microneedling is known as collagen induction therapy uses tiny needles to create micro channels into the skin. A device with hundreds of tiny needles is applied to the skin to produce microscopic puncture wounds in the top layers of the skin. The body naturally attempts to repair the damage by producing collagen and elastin during healing. Boosting collagen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes acne scars, restores lost volume, and improves the overall texture, firmness and thickness of the skin. The procedure also triggers the creation of new skin cells using the body’s natural healing process.
The treatment is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, which retains moisture in the skin. The skin is pre-treated with topical numbing cream. Microneedling is recommended for deeper acne scars and lines, hair regrowth, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation as the deeper micro-injuries associated with microneedling trigger a more drastic repair response.
Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano-channels. This is very similar, but less invasive than microneedling and allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other skin blemishes through the transdermal delivery system for increased effectiveness of serums. Unlike microneedling, nano-needling does not require any numbing cream and will painlessly smooth the skins texture to leave your skin glowing by triggering your body’s self-rejuvenation process.
Nano-needling addresses similar skin concerns as microneedling such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation and elasticity. The depth penetrated by the needling is the biggest difference between the two procedures. Nano-needling only punctures the first layer of the skin creating nano-channels, while microneedling penetrates into the deep dermis. If your skin care concerns include deep lines, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks or deep acne scars, then microneedling is recommended for you.
There is no downtime with nanoneedling and you won’t experience any redness or swelling as with microneedling.
